I absolutely loved this story and Zev and Jonah have joined my list of favorite couples. Their love story was, on the one hand, amazingly sweet having begun as babies essentially, and on the other hand, hotter than hot as they waited through all those years to be together. I can't recommend this book enough. If you love shifters, then this is the story for you.

This was a wonderful story and the chemistry was off the charts.

Dani: I haven't read many shifter books. They don't appeal to me in theory. But this is Cardeno C. and Mary Calmes, so I was willing to put my baggage aside. And I'm so glad I did! This book was funny, just angsty enough to be interesting, totally absorbing, and sweet as hell. … What I really enjoyed about the shifter theme here is that the culture of the hawk ket came alive without getting bogged down by heavy backstory (this is how you show not tell!). … The relationship between Vy and Robert is at once tender and smoldering. Vy loves how strong and possessive and almost feral Robert can get in bed, and so do I! The lovin' here was damn good, especially at the end, with the biting and the…(go read it for yourself if you want the nasty details). … I was smiling so hard at the end, I may have split a lip. This is just a happy book, with well-rounded secondary characters, some action, lots of snarky dialogue that had me laughing aloud, one uppity, slightly insecure hawk, and one hot hunk of a grizzly bear.Sandra: So, I've always said I'm not much for shifters….Big mistake, clearly, because holy crap, I breezed through this in no time at all, giggle-snorted and lawled and snickered at the high-strung bird who found his mate and the big ole Grizzly bear who loves him back. …Also, holy hot boysecks, Batman…What I really liked about this shifter book…

The stories are generally sweet and sexy and even when they deal with serious issues there is still a lightness and fun about them.

Hearts on Fire Reviews

One of the many things that make this particular Cardeno book enjoyable is main character Samuel Goodwin. ...He's like a shifter Mr. Darcy. A shifter Mr. Darcy who hates Korban Keller.....He's never seen any proof that two males may tie together and therefore the possibility doesn't exist for him. Which makes it even sweeter when, after a series of dramatic events, Samuel finally realizes that what he's feeling is love....What I like most about this whole series is the way Cardeno deals with the ever popular shifter mates theme. As I stated above according to the shifter lore found in this series there is only one correct combination that makes up a mating; males and females. But Cardeno shows that not only can two men love each other, two men, even two species within the series, can complete each other..... this book was the fluffy, romantic & sexy good time you can expect from a Cardeno C. book.
